. >> bob king, president of the auto workers was vague when pressed on what the next move will be for the unions and the democrats in michigan. it's clear they want to explore the legal options and throw the channels at this law in court. they want to set the sights on the next election. >> bret: big news. mike tobin live in lansing. thank you. president obama is vehemently against the michigan right to work law. he spoke against it yesterday near detroit. earlier today, the republicans accused the president of deliberately delaying talks to get the country office call cliff. late this afternoon, word of a new offer from the president. an g.o.p. counter offer. we have been told the president and the house speaker boehner spoke on the phone moments ago. chief white house correspondenthead entry has the update. good evening. is that promising? >> some promising signs tonight. i confirmed what you mention about the phone call today. late today between the president and the speaker. that followed what i'm told by the senior officials of what is a better than has been reported
on the pledge, lindsey graham, bob corker, tom coburn, lamar alexander, eric cantor, what do you do at this point to keep the fight going? or do you thinkthat it is necessary to concede a little bit of ground? >> well, two things. the senators, e republican don't matter because thetent democratic senate can pass a tax increase if they want the senaaors you mentioned would only vote for a x increase if they g massive permant entitlement reforms of the kind that rry reid and the president have announced they're not doing. so even if coburn broke his commitment to the people of oklahoma, which he got a elected with a written commitment not to raise taxes at all, his new statement is, he might raise tax as little if he g permanent reform. melissa: do you ffle the de is turning against you and necessary to give in a little bit to get a deal done or not? >> okay. there is no need to raise taxes to get a deal. obama two years ago exnded all the bush tax cuts for two years. there is no reason not to do that again. his reason --. melissa: he ll not agree it though. seems like the only way to
're really talking about giving you right to work for less money. rick: joining us is bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." is the president right? is this more to do with politics than in anything else? >> i'll tell you, rick, these union battles, they're rarely tepid. they are very intense. there will be obviously future battles. the unions, this is a big blow to them. look at wisconsin. you look now at michigan with this law going to pass. wisconsin with scott walker, collective bargaining battle unions lost. they got their guy to win the presidential election. but this is a blow to organized labor. i think these protests are just a message to other states. listen, if you try to do this, we're coming after you. rick: here's the quote though. does this have more to do with the role unions play in the workplace or more the role unions place in electing democratic politicians? >> the unions say, listen, this is a direct assault on them and it will lower wages and also lessen working conditions. industry leaders push back. partisan as you get. on energy issues, even immigration you hav
john boehner had overall numbers and no breakdown. i want to play to you what senator bob corker said yesterday about what he thought john boehner should do to get what he wants on entitlement said. >> a lot of people are putting forth a theory. and i actually think it has merit where you go ahead and give the president the 2% increase that he is talking about. >> i mean, he would be so happy, terry, if he got that, right? that's what he said he's going to get, he's not going to bend on. what if you gave it to him and said in exchange, here is my list? maybe he would do that deal. >> i'm not sure that he's looking for a policymaker. i think he's looking for a political victory. he wants to do the dance in the end zone. and i believe at this point that negotiations that will result in something substantive, what we're going to get is a package that really nobody likes. we're going to have entitlement reform which the democrats have to swallow. they understand that's the big chunk of the federal debt that's looming over us. and republicans have already talked about moving revenue number
in the party and certainly from the right. >> reporter: no doubt about it. bob corker from tennessee was on "fox news sunday" yesterday. he gave fo voice to something you're hearing from an increasing number of republicans right now which is maybe they should give in on raising taxes on the rich in order to fight it out and try to get more leverage in terms of spending cuts. take a listen. >> once you give him the rate on the top 2%, it's actually a much lesser tax increase than what's he's been talking about. the focus then shifts to entitlements. >> reporter: now, the key, though, as we've all been talking about this end of the year deadline, december 31st, but in fact, when you talk to leaders in both parties, they realize the real deadline is probably the end of this week in terms of at least getting a framework of a deal so that then both the house expht senat and e can work on the details and pass this thing. they've got to get moving now, this week, if they're going to get this done by the end of the year. >> shepard: ed, thank you. the president commented today on the battle
have higher tax rates on top earners. tennessee senator bob corker told fox news sunday that republicans should give ground on taxes and concentrate on long-term spending cuts. >> the focus then shifts to entitlements. maybe that puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves this nation. so there is a growing body -- i actually am beginning to believe that is the best route for us to take. >> woodruff: but on nbc, house majority whip kevin mccarthy countered that that approach is the wrong way to go. >> it doesn't solve the problem. the president is asking for higher rates, he's asking for more revenue. most economists agree the best way to get that is through closing special loopholes. when you close those it makes a fair tax process. >> woodruff: a new poll from politico and george washington university backed the president's position. 60% favored raising taxes on households earning more than $250,000 a year. 38% were opposed. another survey last week found that by a 2-to-1 margin, americans would blame republicans if there's no agreement by t
of defense. bill gates, a very good secretary of defense, -- bob gates said to me you need quickly to cultivate and devote time to relationships because you realize you're in this together. >> completely agree. and i would say if anything the pendulum is coming back hardener that direction. >> rose: meaning what? >> meaning coming out of the crisis. i think there's less trust in general. >> rose: it's part of the job in washington. so you value relationship very much and so there are hundreds of c.e.o.s that i know who i can pick up the phone and they trust g.e. and they trust g.e. because they know me or my team and i think that's immensely valuable and i think in the end it's important that business leaders and politicians have a better sense of trust than maybe what we've had over the last five years and, again, those things never work unless you assume you're 50% of the problem. that's what you've got to -- >> rose: assume you're 50% of the problem? in other words -- >> i'm not blameless. >> there's two kinds of advice you can give. this is what i try to do. one is here's what
spent on friday about an hour with bob kerrey. bob kerrey and i reflected back on his experience here in the senate and one memorable meeting that he and i had. and the purpose of that meeting was for bob kerrey to introduce me to the presiding officer. and it was a wonderful meeting because when the meeting finished -- i won't go into detail on everything i said but the presiding officer knows -- i came out of that meeting recognizing how what kindred spirits these two gallant warriors are and were. both having been highly decorated, one in the navy, the other a marine. one medal of honor, the other -- the presiding officer -- navy cross, silver star, more than one bronze star for valor, a number of purple hearts. as i said again, but i can't say it too much, what an honor and pleasure it has been to serve in this body with the senator from virginia, jim webb. i've learned so much about what difference a positive attitude will make. no better example of that is the new g.i. bill of rights. to think that a new senator, a brand-new senator would have the idea, the confidence that i can
on spending cuts. so here's what senator bob corker had to say on the deal. >> i agree that we can get to a grand bargain but it has to be one, in my case, where you've actually made the decisions. i'm not going to do another process bill. i'm sorry. there's an old adage here in the senate, there's nothing to be learned from the second kick in the shin. >> and you can put that on a christmas card. so which sides benefits most from this you go first type of game? >> you know, it's a great question. i do think that we're going to come away with tax hikes for the rich. that's been one of hits key goals, huge issue in the campaign. i think that has to happen. i expect it to happen. that will be a good thing. what i'm hoping is that doesn't mean that republicans will harden around raising the debt ceiling a couple of months from now because that becomes then this continuing game of chicken and that's really what we don't want to see in terms of getting the economy back on track. >> that is the potential next stance. carl rove karl rove is going to stay in this game. he's got five different
